St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter is offering a brand new volunteer opportunity this fall: 1 on 1 mentoring! This new program will link a volunteer with one shelter guest and provide an opportunity for an ongoing relationship. Initially, this volunteer piece will simply look to have you join the guest for dinner at the shelter. As the mentoring relationship grows, that 1 on 1 mentoring will move to public places such as a coffee shop, park, or bowling alley. Mentors will be connected with mentees of the same gender - we are in desperate need for male volunteers. Females are certainly welcome to apply as well, though it may take a little longer to link you with a mentee (as the pool will be smaller). If you’ve felt this longing to get plugged in but haven’t been sure how, or wished that there was a way you could make a deep impact in someone’s life, might you consider this volunteer opportunity? Mentor Orientations will be offered in September and October. Please see the Mentor Match Form. Email Alexia Wood at email@example.com if you are interested in considering this opportunity, and you will be put on an email list for future communication regarding the dates of orientation and next steps.
